for health care reform with two more town hall meetings this week in montana and colorado. at a relatively calm town hall meeting in new hampshire yesterday, the president began calling his initiative by a new name. he's calling it insurance reform. he said that those with private insurance will be able to keep it with more protections if they get sick. those without insurance will be able to choose from a number of plans, one of which would be government-run. mr. obama also shot down rumors that his plan calls for the forced euthanasia of seniors. >> where we do disagree, let's disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that bear no reselance to anything that's actually been proposed. >> about 200 demonstrators showed up outside the meeting. one man came with an unconcealed gun, which is legal in new hampshire. he said he wanted to make a political statement that if you don't exercise your rights, you lose them. >>> a close call for an injured hiker. his dramatic rescue was caught on tape. the 34-year-old broke his ankle while hiking along the shenandoah nationa
